I live in Abu Dhabi but go to Dubai every month or so for some courses and I spotted this beauty in the landscaping - please note the soda can at the bottom for scale....

Now THAT is a Desert Rose!! I've seen some that have naturalized and are fairly large, like Hetty said they seem about half to a quarter that size. But that is one that looks so natural and seems to be the way they were intended to look. It's beautiful!

Wonderful! Thanks for showing it to us!

And, teehee, it certainly messes with the finicky-perfect edge of the tightly gardened area, hey? Whomever planted it had no idea...
